I had an interview scheduled for Wednesday, February 2. I received a call from Angela today saying they had to cancel the on-campus interview and they set up a GChat interview. It took a little work, but I was able to get my flight refunded and my hotel cancelled. I tried to push the issue a little to show them that I am very interested, but I didn't want to push too hard. They called me to cancel, not the other way around. Hopefully this rescheduling won't hurt my chances.


sorry to hear! have you been to ND's campus before? since it was important to me to visit every school i was interviewing at, that i had not been to before...good luck on your interview though!

No I have not been to Notre Dame's campus previously. But I ended up calling and rescheduling the campus visit for next week. I agree that it is very important to visit campus to get a feel for it. The video chat interview just isn't the best way to get a feel for the school in my opinion.

Hi everyone!

I recently received an email from Notre Dame stating that I was a "priority candidate". I wrote my GMAT late January and got an email about a week after that. I am hoping to get my application in by Feb 14...just wondering if you ppl thought there were any/many spots left and whether or not I would have a decent chance. I got 680, with a 3.7 GPA and have about 3 years work experience (post BBA).

BTW, I am hoping for the one-year program and I am from Canada (haha, if that matters!)

Thanks in advance!!!!

Can anyone answer my questions

Do I need to fill out the financial information in the application form right now? Or can i leave it till after getting accepted?

My concern is it sort of seems like I need to get an evaluation of all my finances from a CA and attach it there and I rather do it after getting accepted.

Another question is I am kindof stumped regarding the 4 slide presentation "about yourself"

Should it be professional? bullet points, pictorial? pictures and clip art, or both? pictures may make it look childish?

I could be wrong, but my opinion is that they purposely made the description of the slide show requirement vague to see what applicants come up with. I used it to show an aspect of my life that wasn't perhaps as relevant on my resume, essays or general application. I think it is up to you to determine what you want to demonstrate to the admissions committee.

Thanks and Kudos pkr,

Could you please also comment on whether it is mandatory to fill out the financial information in the application. It asks for all the financial details starting from bank savings to loans.

Regards.

I honestly don't remember seeing that in my application. Are you an international student? I did double check my submitted app, but I did not notice any sections requiring financial information.

Yes pkr, I am an international student, it asks on page 7 for Proof of Financial Resources.

"Enclosed is documentation substantiating the necessary financial resources for my course of study in the MBA program. In completing this form, refer to the estimated budget information given at http://www.nd.edu/~mba. All statements and letters must give amounts in U.S. DOLLARS. A certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20 or Form IAP-66) will not be issued until this information is provided. You must show sufficient funds for your entire duration of study (one or two years). Documentation substantiating the necessary financial resources for the candidate's course of study should be mailed separately to the MBA Admissions Office."

I guess it can wait till results. The reason it concerns me is because I am concerned that if I dont fill it then the reader may feel so does he not have funds?

That is a legitimate concern. Perhaps the best course of action would be to call or email the admissions office to ask. I can't imagine them requiring you to gather and submit all of that information, but it is possible. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I am an international student too. I didnt fill out the financial form.. although it is good if you have all the info ready by the time you submit the application in most cases it is practicaly impossible if you are planning to fund your mba through loans..

You will not be granted a loan unless you have an admit to a university ( each university has different fees) so what information are you going to put up ??

leave it blank.. if you get an admit , you will then have to start processing your loan and then send them that information.. upon which you will recieve an I -2 0

I received the same email(s). I have heard that they won't inform applicants of decisions until at least the 24th, but most likely the 25th. I'm anxious to hear back. I have decisions to make!
